Here we find the Irish Regiment of Canada ready to storm the town of Coriano. It is 13 September 1944, a year after the landings at Salerno. The leaden skies overhead threaten to unleash a deluge. (Fortunately, Mars has decreed that the skies cannot erupt before Turn 3.) Thus begins the Second Battle of Coriano.
Lying in wait are elements of Panzergrenadier-Division 29, the same formation that had caused the T-Patchers so much grief at Salerno the previous September. Seven First Line squads defend boards 5b and 21 with five MG. Gary has thoughtfully provided a couple of 2-4-8 half-squads to pair with the HMG and FT! The German perimeter on board 5b is fortified with wire and mines. (The OB-given roadblocks may be set up on either board.) A medium tank and a Sturmgeschutz give the defense some added hitting power.
Attacker: Canadian (Irish Regiment of Canada, 11th Canadian Infantry Brigade and Lord Strathcona's Horse (Royal Canadians) Regiment)
Defender: German (Bataillon 1, Panzergrenadier-Regiment 71, Panzergrenadier-Division 29 and Panzer-Division 26)
